Linden "Beau" Raimer

Sergeant Beau Raimer was killed when a rotted pine tree fell onto his patrol car.

He and a passenger were in the funeral procession for Deputy Sheriff Hilery A. Mayo Jr., when the accident happened. The procession was moving through Covington when a violent thunderstorm knocked down numerous trees from Slidell to Covington. A large pine tree hit his patrol car on 21st Avenue, crushing the top of the vehicle and killing Sergeant Raimer instantly. The deputy riding with him, who was also his fiance, was taken to St. Tammany Parish Hospital, paralyzed from the chest down.

Sergeant Raimer had served with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office for 10 years. He is survived by his parents, sister, two nephews, and fiance.

Nine years................. It seems like only yesterday that several of us hauled ass to St. Tammany Hospital, hoping, praying, and begging for a miracle, and that it wasn't as bad as it sounded on the radio, even though we could all tell by the sound, nervousness, and fear in everyone's voice that it was bad. Really, really bad.

Even though it was less than a three minute ride from Hillary's services, the drive to the hospital seemed to take forever!! I knew instantly that we had lost you as soon as we pulled up to the hospital, and saw the grief stricken faces of our fellow brothers and sisters in blue.

You were taken from us way too soon my friend. I think about you often brother, and miss the hilarious conversations we used to have. You were always a pleasure to be around.

Keep an eye out for us brother, and help us stay one step ahead in the fight. Rest easy my friend.
